NeuroPhysio can help them to understand the impact this has on their function and plan an evidence based rehabilitation programme to improve their sensation and movement.
The ability to touch and feel is essential to help us to understand the world and move purposefully and accurately.
When a client has suffered a neurological injury or disorder that has resulted in changes to their sensation, NeuroPhysio can help them to understand the impact this has on their function and plan an evidence based rehabilitation programme to improve their sensation and movement.
What is Sensation?
Sensation is fundamental to enable us to move and interact with other people and the environment.
People most often think of sensation as their ability to feel an object, but there are in fact many different aspects and ways in which it can be affected.
NeuroPhysio frequently help people with sensory issues caused by damage to the nervous system resulting in:
Pins & Needles
Lack of joint positional awareness
Difficulty feeling of shapes and texture
Changes in temperature recognition
These symptoms go beyond what a person ‘feels’ and can affect how they move including reducing co-ordination or accuracy and resulting in clumsy movements and a loss of dexterity.
Sensory re-education programmes help people with neurological injuries retrain their brain to process sensory information or to adopt new techniques to compensate for their loss.
NeuroPhysio provides a comprehensive assessment of a person’s sensory problems and design effective training programmes to stimulate the brain to rewire.
Whilst NeuroPhysio will generally include sensory retraining as part of any rehabilitation programme, if sensory deficits are having a more profound impact on movement we may recommend an intensive training programme such as SENSe Sensory Rehabilitation.

I have worked with James with a number of clients who have sustained catastrophic injuries. James has provided valuable input to each client. His contributions have undoubtedly promoted their quality of life, mobility and functioning. James is able to apply his skills and knowledge to promote the optimum outcomes for his clients. He is approachable and his clients and the multi-disciplinary teams greatly value his contributions. James responds in a timely manner to questions posed by myself and the team to ensure that the clients needs are addressed in a timely way. I would very much recommend James to you.
Worked with James for my father's rehabilitation following a sudden and severe stroke. James dealt with any situation with upmost professionalism, whilst being fun and friendly. Over the 12 months of physio the progress has been incredible (bringing me to tears occasionally!) and James has adapted to suit the changing needs of my dad. Through both home sessions and sessions within our local gym my Dad went from strength to strength and I cannot thank him enough. Thank you James, giving my dad a better future than we once thought wouldn't be possible.
